Another Bucket List Checked: Kranji War Memorial, Singapore

Still another post related to my last Singapore trip! 😀

As I mentioned earlier, if there was one place that I really wanted to visit in Singapore, then that would Kranji War Memorial.

The thing is, lately I always have this urge to visit the cemetery wherever I travel, especially if it’s a war cemetery… Why? Because I suppose that’s the best way to remind myself not to take life for granted. But other than that, there’s something that makes me want to visit the cemeteries even more.

It was when one time, I posted a pic I took at Taukkyan War Cemetery on Instagram. Another user randomly commented it telling me that her Grandpa is there. I was confused what she meant until she explained that her late Grandpa was a soldier for the British Army and died in Myanmar during World War 2.

She never got a chance to visit his grave in Taukkyan, but she got his block number and left it with me just in case I’m coming again for a visit. I was a bit emotional when I exchanged messages with her through Instagram DM.

Review: Spacepod@Com Kallang, Singapore

Hi everyone! 😀

As I mentioned last month about my plan for a short trip to Singapore for Arsenal, I’m back! And yes, I managed to travel light with just one trolley bag that weighed less than 10 kg for 3 days… And I also succeed to stay at a capsule hotel for my 2-night stay there.

While this might be something so normal for you guys, those were all my first times for me. So I’ve done a little progress by completing the mission. *lol*

Anyway, a few days ago I made a poll on my Instastory post and the result was that 80% of the voters chose the review of the capsule hotel where I stayed in Singapore instead of the new train from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. So, as I promised… Here I am writing a review of the capsule hotel, Spacepod@com! 😀

How To Travel Smart in ASEAN Countries

As you know, it’s pretty rare to find me writing a post with such a short title like this, but here I am. This time, I want to share some tips about how to travel smart in ASEAN countries because, who’s a better person to tell you if not me, someone who’s a part of the tribes?

And for those who are not familiar with ASEAN, then let me tell you a piece of my knowledge. ASEAN stands for the Association of South East Asian Nation, an intergovernmental organization in this part of the world. And no matter how our people say otherwise, we’re pretty much similar from one and another.

I mean, if we’re so different, then why the heck people looked at me as if I was a trashy Filipino who could barely speak Tagalog in Manila?
